Crate Diggers Ep#13 – Soul Funk Disco | Vinyl Record Collection (Eng sub)
Hello everyone! Welcome to this new episode of Crate Diggers. I just made a selection of 5 records to share with you Let’s go straight into it! The first record I would like to present is a 12”’ single released in 1984 on Are’ n Be Records Fresh Band – Come Back Lover I really like that ultra classy Disco Boogie 12” This song received some heavy rotation in the underground clubs of New York and Chicago with legendary Djs such as Larry Levan and Ron Hardy. This is a big classic for me even though its price is not so cheap anymore. Strongly recommend it Next… What do we have…. Completely different style… We move on to some Japanese Jazz Funk Fusion with this album by Noriki released in 1983. Most people buy this LP for the song “Do What You Do” I really like this song but I prefer the instrumental songs on this album If I have to choose one, I would pick “Cozy’s Melody” A great album! The best in my book by Noroki Noriki released another album a year later that includes 2 or 3 good songs but I think that this album right here is more solid. The artwork of the cover is so cool! Minimalist 80’s design I love this kind of design Definately a big crush on this one! Next! Now we have this Brit 12” single released on obscure label Mix Down Records. N.M. Band – She Wants There is no year mentioned on record but it’s probably from 1985-86 I discovered this record 2 years ago thanks to my friend Jalal (12inchallah on YouTube) Jalal who was one of the biggest Boogie/Funk collectors at the time sold me this record. Both sides are great! The vocal as well as the dub version are dope. It’s really a record that I recommend if you manage to get hold of a copy. It was also released on 7 inch but this format is also hard to find Another big crush for me! What’s next… Linda Taylor – You And Me Just Started released in 1982 This is the original UK press It was also released in the U.S. on Prelude Records Again… I did not know this record until recently. My friend Marwan found it in London during his latest digging session and offered it to me Thank you Marwan Straight heat! Besides you can find this record for a very cheap price You can get it for the price of a coffee as I like to say A must have for me! As usual, I like to end up on a 7 inch release! I pick up a Modern release but trust me there is nothing modern about it really… released in 2017 This has nothing to do with the usual modern funk productions that are released today This is a very authentic Brazilian Disco Boogie sound by Joao Donato E Donatinho I did not know this artist before The track that caught my attention is “Lei Do Amor” I really did not know this record I really slept on this one to be honest It’s my buddy Marc Andre (Walla P) who put me on this record and got me a copy Shout out to you! I’m representing you today. Hope you like it! This record is now really in demand and its price has gone through the roof! Again thank you Walla P! Okay! We’re done with this selection. I hope you liked it ! See you soon for a new episode! Tchao!
